Al used a phrase in his post that alarmed me.
A voice without hope….
It’s an unfinished sentence isn’t it? How would you finish it?
I can’t think of it in any other way because a voice without hope would be the end of a life. We all get to a point in cancer world where hope fades to the point where it’s only a flicker of a light deep inside our hearts, but it isn’t extinguished until that life is gone.
Going through the phases of this disease tests so many parts of what makes us whole. The glue to the whole package is hope. We’re nothing without it and if it’s a strong enough emotion, it can get us through some of the hardest days.
A voice without hope……You finish the sentence.
